St. Paul’s generously supports several outreach projects each Christmas. New projects might be added each year. Current projects are the Seaman's Institute Christmas on the River, the Severe Weather Emergency Shelter, Trinity Cathedral Walk-In Mission, Church of the Atonement Christmas Day Dinner, and the South Hills food pantry.
St. Paul’s coordinates the collection and packing of gifts that will be given to the seamen working on the Pittsburgh rives at Christmas through the Seamen’s Church Institute. The Seamen’s Church Institute is an affiliated service organization of the Episcopal Church dating back to 1834.
